TecMate OptiMate Lithium 0.8A Battery Optimiser (SAE)
Customer Product Reviews
Lithium batteries are a bit of a pain in cold weather with the full cranking power only available when warm. So in winter to warm the battery you either leave the lights and ignition on to discharge or crank it over lots of times to get the full crank power to start. This means a fully charged battery is an absolute must. The optimate is the only charger to fully recover flat lithium's and can be left permanently connected. Plenty of 240v power cable lead and charging lead is great negating the need for extensions leads for my application unlike oxford unit that has short 240v lead and doesn't recover flat batteries.
Perfect lithium charger
It's an OptMate, what more can you ask for? If you have a lithium battery on your bike this is perfect, it's literally just plug in and walk away. Top up charge or long term trickle charge, even recovering some dead battery situation.
Excellent well thought out product
Well thought out product. Differentating features very long cables which means bike can be good bitawayfrom socket. Excellent connector to bike sturdy not flimsy. Screw fixing to enable unid to be mounded off floor which will save damage. Sensible practical product with thought to be practical and long lasting
Tecmate Optimate Lithium
Bought this charger/maintainer from Sportsbike shop because I have bought some stuff from them before and had a very good experience with them. I needed to buy a lithium charger for my bike and this was the best priced one I could find. It came the day after I bought it online. Excellent service. Thanks.
I can highly recommend this product. My Shido lithium (lt10zs) battery was left drained completely due to my Datatool s4 alarm. This device worked a treat in reviving the battery completely. Saved me £100 already. Definitely can recommend.
Nice bit of kit
This is a nice bit of kit and is invaluable if you are using a lithium battery. I wish that I had read some reviews when I bought a Lithium battery a few years ago and is now useless. The charger is well made and the included leads are plenty long enough. The instruction say to keep the charger as far away from the battery as possible.
Revived my battery!
Seems to have saved my 8 year old Shorai lithium battery. 1st cycle through the charger indicated the battery was faulty, which may well have been the case but repeating the process seems to have saved it. Even if the battery is past it I'll be replacing it so this charger has either paid for itself or will be very handy in future. Feels a quality piece of kit. Very simple to use, I'd recommend reading the instructions in advance to understand the meaning of the charger's lights.
Optimate lithium charger
Excellent delivery from Sportsbikeshop, used in conjunction with lithium battery, fitted the charging lead to the battery, but not used it yet as battery came fully charged, it really feels like a quality charger
Absolutely brilliant! It revived an empty li-po (1volt) that had died twice. It slowly charged it for 12-15 hours and now is fully recovered. Classic charger for normal batteries could not charge it. It recognized it as a faulty battery.
